Laharum President calls for regional league reviews
Three weeks ago the Ararat Eagles were pummeled by Great western by 509 points which has seen Penshurst and Hawkesdale MacArthur looking to leave the Mininera league and move into the Warrnambool football and netball and just a couple of years ago
the Southern Mallee giants were smashing everything in sight in the Horsham and district league and moved to the Wimmera league where games are now fairer.
On the weekend Laharum were belted by 312 points by Harrow Balmoral...
Laharum President Tim Nagorcka says leagues across the state are lop sided and something needs to be done...."I think the VCFL or the AFL needs to do a review on country footy and maybe look at something like going to two divisions where the top two go up and the bottom two go down just to even it up and be more competitive"
"All credit to Harrow Balmoral who are a terrific side - they're unbeatable and they're all local blokes and that's a good thing for them and just in general I spose they're one of a few teams like that and we see the Southern Mallee Giants go up to another league a few years ago and its fantastic to see and they're should be more of that".
Asked about using the mercy rule, Nagorcka says ..
